"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

  1. Sandwich the rivoli between two Victorian filigrees. Both filigrees should be facing the same direction.
  2. Secure the rivoli in place by connecting the filigrees together with jump rings, as pictured.
  3. Add the 3 crystal briolettes before closing the jump rings at the bottom of the filigrees.
  4. Cut two 6" pieces of chain, and connect a jump ring to one end of each chain, and add a lobster clasp to one of the jump rings.
  5. Add the Swarovski pearls to eye pins and make simple loops. Follow this tutorial for creating neat loops.
  6. Connect the remaining filigrees, pearl components and rivoli pendant as shown.

I am amazed at how much this Victorian Garden necklace looks like a pair of rosary beads,so very unique and special. Looks just like something out of the Victorian era. So very classy and a great gift for that family member or friend that loves that Victorian era. Is there a video of this necklace? Would love to see it made. There is many stunning colors that can be used in making this. A little more advanced for a beginner but with practice it can be done.
